It's a black and white decision when it comes down to it. This is not meant to be a "pep talk" and it might sound that way, I'm just sharing what I've learned and how I think. It's hard and sad for sure...but it can't be changed. It must be accepted eventually and believe me, it takes time and courage and support and love. Get all of it you can and be thankful for all you get.
